"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?"

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the table in Mourinho's first term in charge as they effectively surrendered their remaining domestic fixtures in order to prioritise winning the Europa League.

Mourinho insists he is content with the United board's efforts in the market and will not protest if the club are unable to bring in a new addition before the window shuts. I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or to say I am not happy with it.

"In my initial analysis from January and through the months I was thinking of four players but I'm not a hard person to work with in spite of if you make it look different", said Mourinho, ahead of United's Premier League opener against West Ham, live on Sky Sports Premier League on Sunday.

However, Mourinho added that one key factor to their title charge at Old Trafford will sharing the scoring load amongst numerous players, as was the case at his previous clubs, and hopes the onus will not be left exclusively on the shoulders of new striker Rolmelu Lukaku.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker played a pivotal role as United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League, despite missing the final two months of the campaign after rupturing his cruciate ligament against Anderlecht in April. "I'm really happy to start the Premier League this weekend because our pre-season was very complete and was a pre-season organised in a way where we start playing MLS teams and ended playing against the best teams in Europe". It's not something urgent, it's nothing that you are desperate to have it done or not done.

United also have the best opening day record of any Premier League team while West Ham have the worst so this should only go one way. But we are involved in four competitions.

Mourinho, who confirmed that Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are still sidelined with injury, believes his squad is in similar shape to how it was at the end of 20116-17, despite their three marquee signings. "He wants more at the highest level".

"I think Tottenham, without any spending, are equipped to win because they have a fantastic team, fantastic manager, great stability". We got a central defender who can play in many other positions, which is important.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

"But if we cannot strengthen the team in this area, we have players we can trust".
